I am hoping to buy a house in the next few months and want to have a bit better idea of what to look for before I even get to the point of having an actual inspector come out. Any one have a suggestion or two of some good books that I could check out? Thanks in advance.

Go to a book store or online and look for Code Check books. I have them for Code Check HVAC, Code Check Plumbing etc. I see they have those in our local Hastings bookstore and you can read them while you are in the store. Principles of Home Inspection – Systems and Standards was part of my training. I am a licensed inspector. You might look at Internachi on the internet. If you can look at their courses without paying you will gain something there. The thing about all this is all this information is for nation wide inspection. I had to take a national test to get a state license. The bordering state is only 50 miles from my home but I cannot go there even though I passed the national test. They will not let me test there to get their license either. All this means you will read and learn a lot of techniques and methods that you will never see in your area. You need to be able to pick out the things you will see in your area. Good luck.

I’ll go with Grandpa and endorse the Code Check books. A copy of Code Check Complete will give you a great leg up on what to look for, in an easy to access form-factor, and will be invaluable reference for the inevitable remodeling (hey, that’s why we’re here, right?).

The Home Reference Book forms have been refined over 20 years with input from hundreds of home inspectors.

If you have experience remodeling I submit that an inspector will be a waste of money. They don’t guarantee anything, don’t find anything that cannot be seen readily, and in my experience (I’ve bought 8 homes) they always miss stuff. If you have specific concerns, like say, questions about the heating system, you’d be better off to pay to have an HVAC professional look at it.

If you’re buying or selling a home, the home inspection is a critical important in the process. If you’ve contracted to buy a home, the home inspection is an opportunity to get a professional inspector’s unbiased view of exactly what you’re getting into. With inspection you’ll know the material using for, such as geotextile home depot or nonwoven with material staple fiber. If you’re not find a book for, you could lookin in some internet info.
